Leura, NSW 2011Last year there were fires in the bushland at/near Leura – seemed ages before they went out. Isn’t nature a wonderful thing that renews life even after all the trauma that occurs?Canon 600D / Tamron 18-270 lens

Excellent photo – truly love this.
Thanks so much – it is interesting!
May I ask what is this? Fantastic capture BTW!
This is a Banksia, native to Australia after the bushfire – see 2nd para referring to cones. Thanks so much. Sally
The flower heads are made up of hundreds (sometimes thousands) of tiny individual flowers grouped together in pairs. The colour of the flower heads usually ranges from yellow to red. Many species flower over autumn and winter.The fruits of banksias (called follicles) are hard and woody and are often grouped together to resemble cones (which they are not true cones are produced only by conifers).The fruits protect the seeds from foraging animals and from fire. In many species the fruits will not open until they have been burnt or completely dried out.
hmm, this is a strange looking plant – is it some type of flytrap or is it a fungus?
